Read an Excerpt

From the Introduction:
"My long training and career as a scientist resulted in my forming certain habits concerning the collection and organization of my own dreams and the dreams of others. I felt an obligation to categorize them, count them, make some graphs and do some statistics. Although I have been told that I am taking the fun and magic out of dreams portraying the future, I feel that it leads to a better understanding of what makes them unique and recognizable from other dreams. I also feel there should be some kind of theory that makes the idea of premonition-type dreams more palatable. Often, facts alone are not enough and many people are more reassured about a phenomenon when there is a theory to explain it. To that end, I have proposed a tentative theory that I hope can be revised and improved over time. More importantly, I have provided a list of things that I (and my fellow dreamers) do to maximize the recognition and use of these special kinds of dreams."
